BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 +10k

Lionel Messi has been replaced by Yerry Mina for Barcelona's trip to Malaga due to 'personal reasons'.

Lionel Messi will not feature for Barcelona in their LaLiga clash with Malaga on Saturday due to "personal reasons".

Argentina international Messi has been replaced in the squad for the clash at La Rosaleda - which pits the league leaders against the bottom side - by centre-back Yerry Mina.

It will be the first LaLiga match the 30-year-old has missed this season and just the fourth in total - he sat out their first three games in the Copa del Rey.



No further information on the reason for Messi's absence has been supplied.

Barca take on Chelsea in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at Camp Nou on Wednesday.
